Ford Shelby GT500 ’13

The Shelby GT500 Mustang has always been a serious car on the streets, but what if it was a drift car? Well I’m here to tell you it’s still an animal! First tune back since the transmission bug and it’s a good one. It was a funny story with this tune. I got the tune from Brandon W. Henry and started to test it out. It drove pretty well, but he told me use comfort hard tires? That seemed so strange to me since a car like this has huge power and would need a minimum of sports soft to get it all down to the road. Once I switched to sports soft it drove much better and only after I told Brandon my findings did I realize he sent a DRIFT tune and not a race tune. He even said drift tune and I have no idea why I thought otherwise. However it was a good and bad experience because with only a tire switch I found out it actually works pretty well for racing or drifting. It’s very smooth and drifts easily. All parts are added, but the power has been heavily reduced and extra weight has been added. Usually I wouldn’t ever do this to a drift car, but it works very well for this one. There are no power drops as the Shelby has massive torque. The extra weight also helps weight distribution allowing the Mustang to drift rather than spin out.
